What the heck is Earth Day actually?


Today, I am informed by the morning radio, is Earth Day. Ok now what? Do we send flowers? Has our life become so regimented that we need a day to remember the earth? It isn't as if it is hard to miss. Or am I just being picky? Just add it to the pantheon of Secretary's Day, Grandparent's Day, Mother's Day, Father's Day, Flag Day, and on infinitum.
I am sorry but I really don't see the need for these "Days." Be respectful to your parents, your employee's and your environment every day. Mind you if I don't get a Mother's Day card I will be crushed.

After I planted my two little plants. One tomato and one bell pepper, I realized it was Earth Day. I guess I did my part! :-)

My husband had his gas cap replaced. Does that count? :-)
